    Correct. But I still believe that the shape of Kit's blades is wrong and cheats. scratch Personally I am against of any heavy chipping to the propellers of Luftwaffe aircraft. Especially if we are gonna build a leader's (or ace) aircraft. They were mad with the situation of their aircraft and they do not leave their birds much to be spoiled. They wanted everything neat and clean. A Heavy weathering on them, would be more effective and real.

    Alex, I did not understand jour comment on the chipping, because in one sentence you said that as aces (especially) "were mad with the situation of their aircraft and they do not leave their birds much to be spoiled. They wanted everything neat and clean."
    And then you stated that "A Heavy weathering on them, would be more effective and real."

    Are you just referring to the chipping of the prop or the whole weathering of the aircraft. In my opinion weathering and chipping does not take sides and chooses which aircraft it is going to affect.

    I am glad that you raised this constructive point as I want the model to be as realistic as possible.

    That's my answer Jo. Exactly.

    NO CHIPPING --- YES on HEAVY weathering (colors)
